RE: Can’t get dealer info I need on battery charging

If you hook the batteries up correctly the charger won't know or care that they are six volt.

RE: Do we or don't we?

You need to work at least to 66. “Tiring of work” isn’t a reasonable excuse. Save every dime you can. BS...Not me, I'm tired of working too. I'm retiring at 62 AND drawing my SS. The money I'll draw between 62 and 65-10 will make up for a ton of the monthly shortfall for retiring early.

RE: Solar Panel Venting

I'm part of several Facebook RV groups and saw yesterday a guy posted a picture of his flex panel installation where the panel was mounted directly to the RV roof. The panel overheated and started a fire on the roof with considerable damage. Because of this I personally believe flex panels are high risk in any RV installation. I don't believe there's away to get sufficient airflow for them. Just my humble opinion.

RE: Spare Tire question- doesnt match our new TT tires

Personally I would ask them to put all Endurance on and remove the Carlisle, just my humble opinion.

RE: Rails vs pucks vs gooseneck mount

I bought a 2018 GMC last July with the puck system and added a Demco adapter plate. It only raises the height of the hitch a 1/2 inch. So far it has worked well and was cheaper than purchasing a new hitch.

RE: Replacing Workhorse Brake Line

Bleeder screws are on the calipers Workhorse caliper The link you provided is for a W21, I find no bleed screw on the W24 calipers. Workhorse W24 Caliper just because you don't see the bleed nipple in those pictures doesn't mean it's not there. those pictures don't show the entire part. The port could be hiding in a portion of the picture not shown.

RE: Towing speed

My max speed is 65 due to max speed rating of tires on the 5ver. However, even if I had higher rated tires I doubt I would drive any faster. The roads are just too rough for any faster speeds in my opinion.

RE: another solar option

Just know that it isn't actually made by Coleman. It's made by some third party licencing the Coleman name with no oversight whatsoever by Coleman. The company I work for does the same thing for HVAC products.

RE: When replacing tow vehicle, do you.....

I took my rails out and moved them to my new truck. actually my local RV shop did it but they recommended a new bolt set, which I agreed with.

RE: RV Ovens

Ours pretty much operates just like the one in the house. Just un-cover the food to brown the top.

RE: Inverter Use

My RV fridge draws about 28 amps or about 336 watts per hour when on electric.

RE: Old Milepost travel Planner

Not sure of your reasoning for not starting with a new one (other than they are expensive). Keep in mind that some of what you read may be out of date. Plan to buy a new one as my departure date approaches but we're probably two years out and just wanted an older one to thumb though, help with my preliminary planning and see what it's all about.

Abbotsford Border Crossing

Anyone have any info on the border crossing at Abbotsford? Looks like they are open 24 hours. Delays, best time of day etc.

RE: Old Milepost travel Planner

Hey all, scratch this request. I just found a 2014 version on Ebay for $6.21 and had some random $5.00 coupon and purchased the Milepost for $1.21 with free shipping.

RE: RCMP seek witnesses - Liard Hot Springs death investigation

Some similarities to the early life of this guy. Hope the result is not the same. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_McCandless Except McCandless wasn't accused of homicide.

Old Milepost travel Planner

Looking to see if anyone has any old Milepost Travel Planners they wouldn't mind getting rid of. I'm starting my Alaska trip planning and would like to get my hands on a Milepost but don't want to buy a current one just yet. Would like to get one no more than 5 years old. Thanks.

RE: Special Trailer Brakes Required in Canada?

YES........ They are required to work Did you ask your 'friend' WHERE they heard this outlandish information? Honestly she said her husband told her who heard it from someone else. It kind of sounded like it was bad information and I've never read anything like that in all my Alaska/Canada research but you never know so thought I would ask.

Special Trailer Brakes Required in Canada?

I had a friend tell me they had heard that there were some sort of special trailer brakes required in Canada. Any info on this, truth or not?

RE: CANADA & ALASKA TRAVEL TIPS

Tardis, I've read there's gas and diesel available on the Dalton Highway at Cold Foot about 1/2 way to the arctic circle. Can you confirm?
